Mr. James Guest
My name is James Guest and I am a first grade teacher at Austin Parkway Elementary. I was born and raised in Houston as the youngest in a large family. After graduating from St. John's High School, I attended Southwestern University and later Vanderbilt University for a graduate degree. I worked in the family business since age 16, spending my school breaks learning about the company my dad built. After many years, I decided to change careers and work with children. Since 2005, I have worked in the elementary setting in both special and general education classrooms. I currently share my home in Houston with my dog. There is always a lot of activity going on around me whether at home or at school! I am glad to be teaching first grade this year!
